Vehicle Title Services

 
 
 
 
 
If you don't like spending time at the DMV, by trying to acquire your vehicle title, where do you go?  To escape the craziness of DMV, you turn to a vehicle title service company!  A vehicle title service is a company that assists you in obtaining a title to a vehicle or the documents necessary so that you can obtain the title yourself.  I would like to state that not all vehicle title services are created the same nor operate the same, so choosing an experience and productive service is important.  Accordingly, this post will place emphasis on title transactions that vehicle title services aid in, experience or training in titling and the legality of getting your service processed..
 
 
Title Transactions That Vehicle Services Aid In:
 
Vehicle title services offer different types of titling and or registration options.  Please be advised that not every vehicle title service offers assistance in all types of titling transactions. The following are services that may be offered:
 
 
  • Original Titles
  • Registrations
  • Substitute Titles
  • Replacement Titles
  • Repo Titles
  • Supplemental Lien/Transfer of Lien Recordings
  • Abandoned Vehicle Titles
  • Mechanic/Storage Lien Titles
  • Salvage Titles
  • Vehicle/Title History Reports


Experience or Training in Vehicle Title Transactions:

The experience factor associated with vehicle title services is varied.  There are some companies who might have actual "first-hand" DMV experience from working at DMV and handling title transactions, some may have only experience in handling transactions as they come up, others may have no experience at all and then there are those who have prior DMV experience as well as assisting current clients/customers of their business.  In addition to whether the experience in vehicle titling is present; please understand that one vehicle title service may have experience in only one type of title, while another may have experience in more than one type of title.

The Legality of Getting Your Service Processed:

When it comes to getting your desired vehicle title processed, it is important to note that vehicle title services operate differently and take different routes when it comes to processing your transaction. When it comes to getting your title, the following factors should be observed:
 
 
  • The title service should uphold every legal measure necessary when it comes to your title transaction
  • Avoid services that escape DMV laws, just  to provide you with a "quick title"
  • Avoid services where the company somehow engages in a shady act of getting you to sign the title over to their company and then they produce a title for you in your name.


Wisdom & Authority Titling Solutions is committed to providing you with the most professional and reliable titling service as possible.  From an honored guarantee to accuracy in your titling transaction, integrity isn't just talked but experienced from start to finish.  When you choose a vehicle title service you owe it you yourself to choose wisely.
 

IRP Jurisdiction Concerns

This post will provide helpful insight to truckers who have questions or concerns pertaining to their IRP jurisdictions.  The focus will be placed on the costs associated with the jurisdictions as well as adding or deleting jurisdictions on IRP cab cards.  Before I continue, I want to mention that IRP jurisdictions consists of the contiguous U.S. and Canadian provinces.
 
 
Costs Associated With IRP Jurisdictions:
 
As a refresher, the purpose of IRP is to ensure that each state receives its fair share of registration revenue, from the truckers that are traveling through that jurisdiction.  As a result, the term "apportioned" is used, so that the registration (IRP) funds are distributed accordingly.  Please observe the following:
 
  • Your base state use formulating factors to determine how much you will be charged for your IRP (Apportioned registration) and distributes funds to all jurisdictions accordingly.
  • Your base jurisdiction usually receives more in the apportioned amount
  • The apportioned rate associated with each state is different and is subject to change


Adding or Deleting IRP Jurisdictions on Cab Cards:

While assisting truckers with their IRP accounts, I often come across some who want to add all 48 states on their cab cards, however only few only run all 48 states.  Please be advised that while a trucker can add all 48 states and participating Canadian provinces; it is wise to give careful consideration as to whether it is necessary to add all 48 jurisdictions or not. It is cost effective to examine whether you need every jurisdiction or not.  Please observe the following:
 
  • During your registration period, you can add your jurisdiction to your IRP account as often as you like.
  • During your registration period you can't delete any jurisdictions from your account.  DELETIONS CAN ONLY BE DONE, WHEN IT'S TIME TO RENEW YOUR IRP ACCOUNT
  • If you have jurisdictions on your IRP account that you didn't run through, you will get a credit when it's time to renew your IRP
  • If you cancel your IRP account you may receive a credit, if you have a certain amount of months remaining on your account.


If you have concerns about your IRP jurisdictions, or your IRP account, Wisdom & Authority Titling Solutions is available to assist you with your transactions.  Whether you are setting up an IRP account for the first time, or making changes to an account, professional motor carrier help is available to you.

 

When To Title Your Vehicle





When to title your vehicle is just as important as not buying a vehicle without a title.  In this post, focus will be on the importance of titling your vehicle within a satisfactory or required amount of time and the consequences of not doing so.  For my readers who may be asking "can't I title my vehicle when I want"?  To answer that question, technically you can't, unless you don't mind the consequences that may occur.  One reason for this is because a title is a legal document and the terms and the disclosures on the title act accordingly as well.


When to Title Your Vehicle:
When buying your vehicle, I recommend titling your vehicle as soon as possible (either the same day or within a few days).  The sooner you get your vehicle titled, the sooner you may be able to get a hold of the seller of the vehicle in the event there is a problem with the title or vehicle record.  From a legal observation, the standard time-frame to get your vehicle titled is usually within 15-30 days (depending on the state), after you purchase the vehicle or relocate to another state.  Also, if you buy a vehicle and you have a lien on it, you can still get the vehicle titled, however the title won't be given to you (depending on the state) but will be mailed to the lien-holder.

Consequences Of Titling Your Vehicle Late:

  • Puts the seller title/vehicle record in a state of delay by showing that he/she still owns the vehicle, even after it was sold to you.
  • You may have to pay a penalty for titling your vehicle late 
  • You put yourself in jeopardy when you wait to title your vehicle late because in the event there is an issue with the titling transaction, there is a chance that the seller of the vehicle may be long gone, which will delay the titling process even further.


A a reminder, Wisdom & Authority Titling Solutions, is able to handle your titling needs.  If you aren't sure  what you need or if you want to address some errors that happened with your transaction, professional help is available to you.

IFTA Taxes 3rd Quarter 2012






IFTA 3rd quarter is underway and the time to stay on top of your IFTA mileage logs and fuel receipts is now.  For those who are new to IFTA tax reporting; this is a tax that is mandated by the Federal government.  With this type of tax, the federal government ensures that motor carriers are taxed based on the amount of fuel purchased in accordance to mileage driven in each jurisdiction. Accordingly the tax is reported by the jurisdiction that is your base state.  IFTA tax filing is due at the end of each quarter.  In this post, focus will be on important IFTA dates, what is needed to file and consequences for not filing.


IMPORTANT IFTA DATES:

Quarter Timings:

  • January 1-March 31 marks the start and end of the first quarter for IFTA
  • April 1-June 30 marks the start and end of second quarter for IFTA
  • July 1-September 30 marks the start and end of third quarter for IFTA
  • October 1-December 31 marks the start and end of fourth quarter for IFTA

Filing Deadlines:
  • April 30 is the deadline to file for IFTA taxes from first quarter
  • July 31 is the deadline to file for IFTA taxes from second quarter
  • October 31 is the deadline to file for IFTA taxes from third quarter
  • January 31 is the deadline to file for IFTA taxes from fourth quarter


What Do You Need to File:
  • Tax ID or IFTA ID Number
  • Well Maintained Mileage log (only one per truck-vehicle specified)
  • Fuel Receipts (for the vehicles that purchased fuel operating under IFTA regulations)

Consequences of Not Filing:
Before I state the consequences of not filing, I must share that it is imperative that you still file your IFTA taxes, even if you had no operations during a particular quarter or your trucking company is no longer in business.  Don't wait for your jurisdiction state to send you a notice of filing,but instead notify them that you didn't have any operations during a particular quarter or that you are no longer in business.  

If you fail to file your IFTA taxes the following can occur:
  • Late fee will incur
  • Interest/Penalties are incurring (while filing hasn't been submitted)
  • IFTA/IRP license suspension
  • Threat of DOT citations and other regulation violations
  • Possible shutdown of operations
